We had a great experience right from the start with this company. I emailed them questions about taking the dog and about cafés etc. They were always prompt and helpful in their replies. We needed to amend our booking fairly near the time we visited and again, this was handled without any fuss. The river was beautiful - we did the longest trip available, with a gorgeous stop for lunch. It was very easy to arrange a pick up at the end, which was much appreciated. I was very pleased that we drove to this place rather than taking a more crowded route.

We had a wonderful experience . We did the 10km kayaking from Poupehan . The family who run the place are such lovely and friendly people . The kayaks are super comfortable and the scenery is breath taking .The rates are very reasonable as well . We will definitely be back.

The stretch Poupehan-Alle is often doable even at times when the Semois river has a lowish water-level. In rather dry periods (alas very often these last few years in this part of Europe) this is the one to try on the Semois rather than the other stretches more upstream. Doing it with "Kayaks La Vanne" is ideal because you pay and leave you car at the end point. You get shuttled to the starting point so when you arrive you can immediately go home without waisting time waiting for a shuttle.

Hi Jack, Thank you for the nice review and thanks for pointing these things out. We indeed have the option to be driven upstream to kayak the Poupehan-Alle traject (12km). Other parcours start from Alle up to 7, 12 and 20km. For which we pick you up after completing the distance. The low water level is giving us some concerns and damaged kayaks, but you were also right stating the Semois will always be latest to close, and best for kayaking during dry periods. ;) Kind regards, Jonathan Kayaks La Vanne
